Talking about page translation (not post), ideally you would:

1) create a page using a layout builder
2) enter text and medias in the current language. Save page
3) Enable translation for the page.
4) Enter text in other languages, using the same layout
5) Once changes are performed on the original layout, those will be automatically used by translated pages, BUT translated text and medias woul be retained.

As for the following WPML article https://wpml.org/2016/09/translation-support-for-page-builders-coming-to-wpml-3-6/, two years ago you started supporting translation for pages created with layout builders. Initial development was performed for Visual Composer.

What is the current state? Is there a list of supported layout builders? Does the page translation process resemble what I have described?

Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

The way you described it is how it should work, yes. WPML’s Translation Editor takes care for preserving the layout while allowing translators only to input new strings, without entering the builders directly (manual translation is also available). We are constantly working on adding more popular page builders to WPML’s list of integrations.

The following page builders are integrated with WPML:

- WPBakery Page Builder
- Divi Builder
- Cornerstone
- Avia Builder (Enfold theme)
- Beaver Builder
- Fusion Builder (Avada theme)
- Elementor
- SiteOrigin Page Builder

https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/page-builders/

Please note that this is ongoing process - as builders evolve, we also try to keep up (since they are constantly adding new elements, shortcodes, widgets, etc).

Regards,
Bruno Kos

Thanks Bruno!

To clarify, I was told WPML does not support Siteorigin's Pagebuilder translation due to widgets, therefore users are required to translate independently pages.

Could you confirm other editors such as Enfold's or WP Baker support page translation so that once the layout is modified all translated versions will apply the modifications?

Hi,

You can find out more about SiteOrigin Page Builder here:

https://wpml.org/documentation/plugins-compatibility/using-wpml-siteorigin/
https://wpml.org/plugin/page-builder-by-siteorigin/

And to answer your second question - yes, translations should get new elements added into original page so that translators can translate these as well.

Regards,
Bruno Kos
